Frank Welcomes You

I’m so appreciative of your visit to my website. Why? Because I’m still new at writing novels. Boca News, the second of my “Boca” series of Lynn Woo mystery thrillers, has just come out.

The tony resort island of Boca Grande, Florida is once again the setting. It’s a real place, in fact, I had a second home there for many years. I became intimate with the island village and I know my way around every back bay and estuary within a hour’s boat ride of the Boca Grande bayou. So choosing it as the setting for my books was a slam dunk (to use a cliché, which writers aren’t supposed to).

The tropical beauty of the village of Boca Grande actually becomes a character in my books. It’s home to banyans and frangipani, pelicans and egrets, a colony of iguanas, and some rich folks who readily mingle with ordinary islanders. Oh, and an alligator or two, but if you’ve read my first book, Boca Moon, you know that.

My books take just enough time with descriptions to get you licking a little tropical salt from your lips as you read, but the stories pull you through the pages at a fast clip. At least I hope so. You’d be helping me by emailing me whether you agree. Would love to hear from you at any time about anything (except story ideas because my lawyer would have a heart attack). I’ll do my best to answer every email.

I hope you’ll get to know Lynn Woo almost as well as I have. She’s got some flaws and demons and problems, but I think she has a soul. Do you? Anybody who nurtures a one-eared dog (her black lab, Mullet) can’t be all bad, right? And anybody who puts up with a germ-freak lover (Rolf Berglund) has to be up for sainthood. Truck Kershaw, the deputy, is a favorite, but that Lt. Symanski... I get so mad at him.

Over time, we’ll be building and then editing the site’s photo gallery. Watch for pictures of Boca Grande, including the actual locations where some really nasty things happen in my books, and pictures from my latest fly fishing trips.

Thanks again for visiting; I hope you’ll do it often. All the best.
